The seaside of the eastern shore has been the best of the fishing action this past week. The flounder are fairly prevalent on the railcars as well as in the inlets. The Spanish bite has been great just offshore with triggers on the inshore wrecks. Cobia are still around and mahi are keeping the offshore anglers busy. Deep dropping for tiles also have helped make up for a lack luster tuna season. The Chesapeake is still producing specs and rock in the shallows , but the water is getting really warm for that bite to continue.
Today's threat of rain scared away my Wednesday charter... However in the Abell household it's pretty easy to get a crew together. With Daddy's unexpected day off Sam and Belle jumped at the chance for a Seahawk family trip. We had a great time with nice Cobia action along with a pile of sharks to keep everyone interested. Just goes to show you despite what the weather man says the only way to catch fish is to get off the couch and enjoy the greatest place on Earth!!!!!
The big story this week has been great Cobia fishing with a side of offshore action between the wind gusts. The Cobia have been prevalent from Watts down to the CBBT ( highest concentration south). We've done best with cut bunker fished on a FF rigs while chumming. The bite has been good on a flood tide and in 18'-28' depths. There has also been an offshore trolling bite for tuna and mahi. Unfortunately the action has been mainly in the canyons. Hopefully the inshore lumps will heat up soon. Lastly, there's still some specs and rock to be caught on the flats of the Tangier and Pocomoke sounds. Crabs are out catching lures but the tables will turn for all us plastic chunkers this fall.
